Apple Picking Near Me

I love autumn and late summer. We are busy every single weekend. Sure, it gets tiring, but I just remind myself that in a few short months we could be home-bound for several months due to winter weather. We love going apple picking and I love coming home with a whole bunch of fresh apples to cook with.

My boys are at an age where they enjoy helping in the kitchen. Even Brian is helping me pick out recipes sometimes. You’d think that we have a favorite, you know, the best place to pick apples or a favorite apple orchard. And, I guess we kinda do (Milburn!). But here you go–

  • Apple Picking NJ
  • Apple Picking Pennsylvania
  • Apple Picking Delaware
  • (and yet, our favorite is in Maryland!)
apple picking in New Jersey and PA

Keep in mind that these are working orchards. They may not have the giant corn mazes, hayrides, and commercialism that now comes with fall. Check the website ahead of time.

Apple Picking NJ

My husband grew up in New Jersey, and it’s so cool to know that some of the places he went apple picking as a child are still around today. Make a day of it and go apple picking in New Jersey!
